I think he should be thanking his lucky stars that the GR cops didn't try to cover up the 'new evidence' that finally exonerated him after more than 20 years.

I cannot imagine what this young man went through. Convicted at 16 of raping and beating a 10 year old, then sitting in prison until he'd spent as much time behind bars as outside them, then getting out in his mid 30s as a registered sex offender with zero job experience to claim for his entire lifetime...

In short, he went to prison because a frightened 10 year old girl was more afraid of the man who raped and beat her than she was of an innocent 16 year old kid.

That said, I don't think it's specifically the GRPD that failed him.
But our 'justice' system surely did.
